That's fair...I have no problem with that. I usually watch a movie from netflix and if it's good, I'll buy a copy. If it's not good, it's cost me a few cents from netflix. I can wait 28 days. Message to studios though...put out more GOOD films and you'll make more money.

Who cares.. They should delay it for months. Americans are getting fat from sitting in front of the TV watching the latest movie release... Put down the remote people...put down the remote.

I agree with you, I rarely will buy a DVD (at 20-25$ a pop for new releases) unless I've seen it and like it and want to see it again. I've tried Blockbuster and their service just isn't up to the same par as Netflix. So I will wait the 28 days, then wait another few weeks for it to come off the "long/short wait" list anyway. Still waiting for "Night At the Museum 2".

I'm not sure where RedBox fits in to all of this but it really is an awesome way to get movies. I've been doing it since they have been out in my area. I am not sure how they are with the latest releases because I am not up on what is current or not. I'm all done buying movies, I rarely watch anything twice. Also, since I don't have a chance to watch many movies, including popular ones, the library is a great source. You can see what is available on the internet and go down and grab it. I usually go down the list of the most popular movies as told by imdb.com and then check the library from home. Time warner really doesn't have a good enough rotation to warrent paying for it on a monthly basis.
